L’éternité (eternity) is an ode to nature and inner nature. Animals as welcomers at a gate to a magical world. A portal to inner exploration. A welcoming gesture to enter your own personal realm. The portal is universal, the content is dependent on your own soul. Timelessness through decay and romanticism from theatrical gestures. Contradictions where beauty meets death and where recognition meets mysticism.
